Jams Comparison Test
We are like you, we love fruit jams. Who doesn't enjoy a good fruit spread from time to time, right?
But would you eat just anything just because it's a sweet dessert? Of course you wouldn't.
Well, we feel you. We know how hard it is to find a clean quality fruit jam.
The majority of the conventional mass-produced jams you can find in stores have a lot of ingredients that simply don't belong there. And A LOT of sugar!
That's why we bring you some real fruit jams from Europe.
Homemade, slow cooked the right way, with simple ingredients. Real fruit and low sugar. That's all! Just like our mothers and grandmothers used to make them. Remember?
No pectin, no glucose, no high fructose corn syrup, no colors, no sodium benzoate, no locust bean gum, no potassium sorbate!
To show you our difference, we decided to perform a small experiment. We went in a few stores in Montreal and Toronto and checked the labels on some fruit jams and then compared them to ours.
The results of the jam comparison were stunning. Judge for yourself.
⦿ Our Blackberry Jam is made with wild fruit, has 2 ingredients, 6g of sugar and 27 calories/tablespoon.
The other has 5 ingredients, 13g of sugar and 50 calories for the same quantity.
⦿ Our Rosehip Jam is made with wild fruit, has 2 ingredients, 5g of sugar and 26 calories/tablespoon.
The other has 4 ingredients, 12g of sugar and 52 calories.
⦿ Let's see another Rosehip Jam.
Ours is made with wild fruit, has 5g of sugar and 26 calories/tablespoon.
The other is made of rosehip puree, has 11g of sugar and 45 calories for the same quantity.
⦿ Our Forest Fruits Jam is made with wild fruits (bilberry, lingonberry, raspberry and blackberry), has 7g and 28 calories per tablespoon.
The other also has a mix of fruits, but sugar is the first and most important ingredient. This comes with 13g and 50 calories per tablespoon.
⦿ Since bilberry is the European cousin of the blueberry and couldn't find any bilberry jam in stores, we compared ours with some blueberry jams.
Our Bilberry Jam is made with wild fruit, has 2 ingredients, 7g of sugar and 28 calories per tablespoon.
The other is also made with wild fruit, but has 5 ingredients, 9g of sugar and 50 calories.
⦿ Our Bilberry Jam is made with wild fruit, has 2 ingredients, 7g of sugar and 28 calories per tablespoon.
The other one has 4 ingredients, 15g of sugar and 53 calories per tablespoon.
⦿ We saved the best for last. We were surprised to find a blueberry jam that apparently has less sugar (5g vs 7g) and less calories (25 vs 28) per tablespoon compared to ours.
And then we saw the (10) ingredients. Wow! Enjoy the read.
If you had the patience to read all the labels, you must be concerned about the chemicals found in the overly processed food present in so many stores today.
We are too, that's why we seek to make a difference in your life by offering clean and healthy jams, homemade with love and care.
